PaperlessKitchen Review and Giveaway
Raising a larger-than-avereage family, I am increasingly aware of ways to reduce our waste.
All of the children’s clothing is either hand-me-downs or are handed down. We always carpool. I purchase food on sale and in season. I try to reuse everything I can.
And, one of the biggest money saving and waste reducing moves I have made in the last 10 years is that I have moved to a paperless kitchen. Yes, that means that we don’t use paper napkins, paper plates, or even paper towels.
At first it took some getting used to. Dakotapastor was used to ripping off a clean paper towel every time he washed his hands. It takes more time to fold cloth napkins all the time. Keeping a supply of cloth washcloths and towels for wiping up and cleaning takes up additional space.
However, we have learned that cloth napkins and towels are much more effective than their paper counterparts.
They also offer bamboo dinnerware, including this adorable bamboo baby feeding bowl that is a great alternative to plastic feeding bowls and utensils.
But the product that I was able to try, and the product that I really did fall in love with was the Skoy Cloth. These Eco-friendly cleaning cloths are an affordable way to cut down paper use in your kitchen. These biodegradable cleaning cloths are made from natural cotton and cellulose pulp. When wet they feel like a super thick, absorbent paper towel, but they are much sturdier! These cloths absorb 15X their weight in liquid (I think the kids are spilling things just to test them!). They can be sterilized for two minutes in the microwave or can be washed in the dish washer or washing machine. I think they do a great job cleaning counter tops and tables and I’ve even used them to get sticky messes off of my floor. They don’t get smelly like sponges.
Each Skoy Cloth can be used enough times to be the equivalent of 15 rolls of paper towels!
